Evaluating antipoverty transfer programmes in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa: Better policies? Better politics?

Evaluating antipoverty transfer programmes in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa: Better policies? Better politics?

WORKING PAPER by Armando Barrientos and Juan M. Villa

UNU-WIDER, February 2013

This working paper provides a comparative analysis of the incidence of evaluation methods in antipoverty transfer programmes in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa. It identifies two broad explanations for the incidence of evaluation in antipoverty transfer programmes in developing countries, one emphasizing the advantages of a shift towards evidence-based development policy, and a second explanation emphasizing political factors.

The paper assesses their relevance in the context of Latin American and sub-Saharan African countries with a view to throwing light on whether the evaluation of antipoverty transfer programmes will lead to an improved effectiveness of the relevant government agencies.
